SEOUL: North Korea has announced that it is launching another spy satellite this month after two unsuccessful attempts in 2023.

North Korea said they have notified Japan that the launch will take place before 2 December.

Meanwhile, South Korea has also expressed willingness to send military reconnaissance satellites into space on Nov. 30.

South Korea will respond to provocation, senior South Korean military officer, Kang Hopil, said

Two failed attempts

North Korea has already failed twice in its satellite adventure recently but said it wouldn’t back down.

North Korea failed to send a spy satellite in May and August, but both times the rockets failed to achieve their objectives.

Meanwhile, Kang Ho-pil, chief director of operations at the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff, said South Korea will respond by taking necessary measures.

South Korea to follow suit

South Korea has also announced plans to send its first domestically developed military reconnaissance satellite by 30 November.

Experts believe that South Korea is looking to reduce its dependence on American intelligence systems.
